When heat in Phoenix reaches triple-digits, some resorts drop prices to double digits. Rooms start at $89 at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort and $109 at Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort until early September.
The deal: Both resorts are in the northern part of the Arizona city. Summer Splash at Tapatio Cliffs offers a stay at one of the 584 rooms and suites at the AAA Four Diamond resort. It has eight pools, a 40-foot waterfall and a 138-foot waterslide as well as a golf course and spa.
All-suite rooms at Squaw Peak are set on a 27-acre Spanish Mediterranean-style spread with a lazy river, waterfalls, 18-hole mini-golf course as well as free sport camps for children in August and dive-in movies on Friday nights.
When: Offers at both hotels are good through Sept. 7, based on availability.
Tested: At Tapatio Cliffs, I found a one-bedroom suite available that accommodates four (two queen-sized beds and a queen-sized sofa bed) for $79 a night plus tax and a $10 daily resort fee. In a check of online rates, the same suite in winter would cost about $139 to $159 a night plus tax and resort fee.
